Virtual Reunion

 By John I. Blair

In these pandemic times
Like fish seek water
We leap to greet
On zoom rooms,

Chat as groups
Of tiny faces on PCs,
Unable to link hands,
Give hugs or kisses.

We know
It’s not the same
Nor will it likely
Ever be the same.

Don’t cry for us.
Nor should we grieve
For one another
I do think.

To see familiar faces,
Hear familiar voices
Once again can feel
So sweet, so right.

My father, mother,
Brother, wife and more
Now are gone.

Would I might arrange
A brief zoom meet
With them tonight.
